Dwango - Female health managers keeping engineers in shape!
Engineers tend to keep long hours and eat unhealthy food from working too many late nights. So, to encourage their engineers to live a regular and healthy lifestyle, Japanese media company, Dwango, is going to implement a project called "Jyoshi-mane Bento" to their engineers on September 2.
"Jyoshi-mane" (an abbreviation for "Jyoshi Manager") is a common term for a female manager who takes care of the players, equipment and records of a school sports team. Drawing from this Japanese tradition, Dwango hired 15 girls for a new Joshi-mane position as a part-time job. Those girls have to wear a gym uniform to make them look more like real team managers to help the engineers.
Below are what the Joshi-mane team is going to do:
1. They will lead easy traditional gymnastic exercises called "Radio Taiso" at 10:30am every morning. Engineers who join the exercises get a stamp on a dedicated stamp card.
2. At lunch time, Joshi-mane will hand them a nutritious bento box for free in exchange for the stamp. They can choose out of 6 or 7 kinds of different bento boxes.
3. They will keep a bubbly and smiley attitude around the engineers.
If the engineers can have a more healthy and productive day, this project is a genius and innovative idea! For engineers, it is great because they can join the exercise to get in shape, get a free nutritions lunch, and spend some time with cute, energetic girls… For Dwango, it may help get more interest from engineers who might consider looking for a job there.
